the topic of tax reform. most people thought the world was flat and anyone sent on a journey would likely go off a cliff. columbus bar defined a new route. today we are going to be exploring new routes to tax reform and how to avoid the fiscal cliff. the senator will talk for approximately 20 or 25 minutes. and we will open up the conference to questions. >> there is perhaps no issue facing congress that is more complex man tax reform. for all the disagreements on taxes, most policy-makers and what the broad outline of tax reform might look like when you ask them is you get a startling difference in dramatically lowering the rate of broadening the tax debate. -- bess. -- base. ronald reagan and the 1986 congress created this. in the upcoming talks on the fiscal cliff, we should scrap this. the old style of tax reform is obsolete in a 2012 world. it does not fit the times because there are two new conditions that did not exist in 1986 but are staring us in the face today. first, a much larger and much more dangerous deficit and second, a dramatic increase been income and inequality. old-style

knows taxes are due on april 15. we set up tax centers on the base three months prior and we take active duty military personnel off their regular duties and they go in and assist people with their taxes. you have people assisting with federal and state taxes. we provide nothing of the sort for voting registration. the move act was supposed to get offices set up on the basis. everybody could have gone in to check in with that voting assistance officer. that has never been in place while we were on active duty. we don't want a stack of voter registration ballots sitting on a counter somewhere. we want them to physically go in and say whether they want to register or not. this is the only way we can track it and find out if it is sure apathy which i find hard to believe. or is it just not having access? host: there is a project called a military voter protection project and they compared 2008 ballot requests and 2012 ballot requests and looking at key states, they thought there was a great difference as far bell requests. do you believe there is a significant difference? guest: this is hor
, my old pal, art laffer, is going to blast obama and tell you why mitt romney's tax reform is pro-growth and it will not cost anything like $5 trillion. >>> plus, did president obama, hillary clinton and susan rice lie about the 9/11 benghazian attack? the latest sworn congressional testimony sure makes it sound that way. >>> first up tonight, let's do some stock investigation. fourth day of losses across the board. dow dropped 129 points. is the tepid earnings season to blame or are you guys missing a political revolution which will surround the economy? let's talk. we have mike holland, david goldman and michael farr. michael, i don't care about third-quarter earnings. that is so yesterday's news. i can't stand it. that is just so yesterday's news. it's boring. it's nothing. maybe the guidance has something to say. but the economy is not in bad shape. the economy is not in bad recessionary shape and a political revolution is coming and i want to get your take. after you get through taking profits, michael, what happens next? do you buy them back? >> i think you do a little bit,
thelevel of the tax cuts $1 million which is not the administration's position and it still is not. sometimes he plays fast and loose with the facts of the veal obama campaign calls them alive with net romney. i think paul ryan's should have pushed back. he was behaving in the rude manner the he should have been prepared he looked weak >> the moderator was explicit she did not give the vice president the scolding he deserved. had she done that it could have ended it. gerri: i hate to win best peop complained about the moderator. [laughter] great job. you made fantastic points. the smiling, other grimace, laughing, smirking. joe biden not making any effort to hide his emotions. it is great to have you here. the smiling the ridiculous laughing it seemed like a put down. >> condescension. child, young one. i ow what i talk about. he came across as stronger and more dominant. gerri: what do you make of when they walked out? to show the very beginning. >> the handshake was good. you can see from both positions. they're doing the same thing. they come out even they both look strong. gerr
that. you're also taxing the middle class under the ryan plan. that is disdain today. >> all right, dr. ruiz. so do you want a 30-second rebuttal of the campaign? >> of course, i do. this is critically important. was there police brutality or was there not? was it an elder or a child? these things, folks, are in the press. they are in "the boston herald," they are in the harvard newspaper. they are documented. they are written. they're spelled out for people to see. it is critically important that people know that who he's saying he is right now is not who he is. further, what i said in that email message was that the city councilman should have been held accountable for allowing durhamville to be the third-world condition that it was and that it continues to be. have your party release the entire interslew. -- interview. release the interview that exonerates me. >> we're down to the last couple of questions. elizabeth, you have the floor. >> dr. ruiz, in 2010 a bipartisan federal commission unveiled the plan to cut the nation's deficit by $4 trillion through a mix of tax increases and
policies indeed. one the state is highest gas tax of any in the nation. two, refining costs are highest in the nation, due to air quality standards, 3, state has insufficient pipeline connection to western oil and gas market that makes the disruption owono. >> looking at obama administration, policy for policy they are doing the same thing. liz: including cap and trade, governor jerry brown said, i will allowance earlier release of winter blend into the gas supply of california, do you think that will move the needle? >> 50-cents is far too large, platts reported this morning, media reports that blenders and refiners in california were already making that adjustment. so, no, that is not moving the needle. if i might just add, the four policy that obama administration is pursuing one gh greenhouse gas regulation. that will raise gas prices, two. he will make refining more expensive with epa pending tier 3 su sulfer control, three the keystone pipeline that was rejected. and four the president continues to refuse to allow oil and gas development off of the coast. liz: oil was going down
i know you're under a lot of duress to make up for lost ground. lower tax rates increase growth. >> now you're jack kennedy? >> the interruptions, the facial expressions, and the facts. we're going to have the high lights, the low lights, the arguments and a fact check as well on the candidates' claims. it's friday october 12th. "starting point" comes to you live from danville, kentucky. >>> good morning, welcome everybody. you're watching "starting point." we're coming to you live this morning from center college here in danville, kentucky. things last night right here were pretty heated between the vice presidential candidates, no one had a bad night. nobody was too polite. instead joe biden, paul ryan, simply let it fly and when it was over the american people scored it a draw. cnn/orc poll of debate watchers showed that 48% felt that paul ryan won. 44% said that the vice president joe biden won. of course that would be a statistical tie when you calculate in the margin of error. we begin with cnn's dana bash with some of the highlights of the night. good morning. >> good mor
-taking that we get. and it's probably true that if we increase the tax rate we will get a rapid contraction in another risk taking but that is a compounding effect that can grow quite large overtime. in the same what if we stopped investing this year, it's not like economy would collapse. it will gradually slow down over time. and so higher payoffs for risk-taking, one is the they increase the bar for success. the united states most talented people work longer hours while their counterparts in europe and japan work fewer hours. the rest of the economy as people have grown richer they've had a reduction in the amount of work that they've done. so that's one of the things that's happened, keeping up with the joneses if you will. that work effort and the risk-taking that it represents creates companies like google and facebook in countless of other companies, innovations that we have enjoyed in the united states more than in europe and japan. and that creates valuable on the job training for our most talented workers. and so again you get the training and increases your probability for success
potentially from higher taxes and indeed reduced government spending. >> rick santelli, you heard that whole list of reasons. is that why we saw this ten-year auction today? people gobbling up ten-year government debt at these extremely low yields because they think they're not going to get much better elsewhere? sounds like people don't think there's a lot of growth coming. >> i think there's a little bit of truth in all of it. i'll bring up another point. i think october, a lot of mutual funds ahave the end of their fiscal year. it's been a good run for stocks. the spread between what the stock market is telling us and the economy is pretty wide. the election, depending how it turns out, could have a lot of implications. to me, it makes perfect sense the closer we get to the end of the year, the closer we get to november, people are going to be lightening up. it all makes sense. >> yeah, and mandy, you were highlighting earlier oil is lower, gold is lower. a lot of the base materials have been suffering as well today. >> yeah, that's absolutely true. you know, i think what's also interesti
these things a lot tonight in my comments. i was the governor who drew top tax fraud. i had to cut $5 billion from the state budget, including my own salary. i'm the only governor in modern times who left the office with a smaller general fund budget and when i started. i know how to be fiscally responsible. my opponent when into the united states senate in 2001 with the biggest surplus in the united states and six years later left with massive deficits. during his time in the senate, the national debt went up by $16,000. he conceded that spending was a problem in the senate. we also have people who need to know how to work together. i learned to cut crime bills and the economy. my opponent said his job was to not democrats softly. he took this similar position in the senate, fighting efforts led by the then-senior virginia senator. when someone who will fight and that is what i will do is your next to none state senator. >> if mr. allen, your opening statement. >> thank you. it's much better future than what we are having to endure these days. that is why i put forward a detailed plan. my bl
taxes next. i'm going to let governor romney explain this for himself. >> well, i've made it pretty clear that my principles are number one, simplify the code, number two, create incentives for small businesses and large businesses to grow. number three, don't reduce the burden on high-income taxpayers. and number four, remove the burden somewhat from middle income people. >> now, you can get all that done in four years we'll have a bran new tax code by 2016. again, it's bold. everybody talks about doing it but nobody's done it really since reagan. finally let's take a look at the deficit. romney is planning to cut a lot more than funding to big bird and pbs. his plans include repealing obama care, reducing foreign aide and privatizing amtrak. you may notny that's that big of a deal. i use it all the time. romney says privatizing it will save $1.3 billion. the budget is made up a lot of small things. however he does it, his goal is to reduce government spending to 20% of gdp. gdp is the biggest measure of everything we produce in society. he wants to do that by the end 6 his first t
construction workers back to work. why? it would have been an increase in taxes, not for most people, but for those who make a million dollars or more. making the investments in education, making the investments in research, and we make those investments together and build a future. that is what it will take over the long run to build a stronger future here in western massachusetts, all across the commonwealth, and all across the country. >> thank you. before i start, i want to thank the mayor for your endorsement and support. thank you both for coming. this is actually about jobs and economy. the whole race is about that. we held one of our first jobs fares here because we want to connect people with jobs. when you put a title on a bill in washington that says jobs bill, you have to read the bill. those bills in particular were rejected in a bipartisan manner, and that means democrats and republicans recognize that by taking for under $50 billion in taxes out of the private sector and giving it to washington to increase government spending, that is not the answer. the best answer is
another tape and we'll switch subjects over to one of my favorites, taxes, listen to what paul ryan said last night, debating taxes. >> there are enough rich people and small businesses to tax and to pay for all their spending and so the next time you hear them say don't worry about it we'll get a few wealthy people to pay their fair share, watch the middle class, the tax bill is coming to you. >> jimmy you had two clear opposites last night. you had ryan defending romney's tax reform plan which lowers marginal rates and puts a strict spending cap on deductions or you had joe biden who proudly was proclaiming who wants to raise taxes by $1 trillion on the rich. how does this play out, jimmy in the next two debates and the remainder of the campaign? >> finally, i'm delighted that someone in this case as paul ryan pointed out that even though the president's been talking about this fantasy, bib lechal middle class tax right that romney and ryan has upon the american people it's the obama plan that has the tax hike in it because there's no way you can pay for all of the spending this admini
dollars of revenues. number four, have it more comprehensive or more competitive simple tax code with fewer deductions than would not only create over 500,000 new jobs a year but over $23 billion would come in every year. that's the way to do it. set priorities, make cuts but also grow the economy. >> now time for our closing statements and by the order of coin flip, mr. allen, you go first. >> well, thank you for the opportunity to have this debate and thank you all again for watching. there's a lot at stake in this election. it's a pivotal election but it's going to determine the trajectory of our country. whether there will be changes in the united states senate, if tim is in, he will be in there for the same folks he's campaigning for all of these years when he was chair of the democratic national committee, ignoring the needs, dire needs of people in virginia. i want to see change in washington, those positive, constructive ideas that can get this country going in the right direction. i believe we ought to get united behind the mission of sending a message to the world that
clinton were turned into record deficits under george bush is because we put two wars and two tax cuts on a credit card. and now governor romney wants another $5 trillion in tax cuts that he can't pay for? not if i have anything to say about it. that's not going to happen. [applause] we are not going to let this country fall backward. not now. not with so much at stake. we've got to move forward. we need to invest in small business and manufacturers who create jobs here in the united states. we need to recruit 100,000 math and science teachers, train two million workers at community college, bring down the cost of college tuition. we need to -- [cheers and applause] we need to cut our oil imports in half. create thousands more jobs in clean energy. we need to use the savings from ending the wars in iraq and afghanistan to help pay down our deficit and put people back to work doing some nation building right here at home. that's the agenda we need. that's how you strengthen the middle class. that's how you keep moving forward. that's the choice in this election. and that's why i'm runni
policies on taxes and energy and our regulatory regime, at those are the things making it more expensive. makes it difficult for them to invest and create jobs. it is not just manufacturing. you see that across the entire business community. >> is that it? fix those policy issues, and whatever else is happening in america will be extended again? >> this is a bright spot. we should recognize that and embrace it. this is an opportunity for us to leave and emerge from the session. -- the recession we have been fighting our way through for five years. we can reestablish this economy as the leading economy in the world. there was a lot of attention paid to the numbers last week. the important point is 7.8% is good if it comes down. we have to look at the bigger number which is much higher. that is the more troubling number. i note some have been out for 27 -- almost 5 million americans have been out of work for 27 weeks. they have become much more difficult to import. -- employ. we have a mismatch. if we're going to look at numbers, the way to fix this is not focusing on employment. it is foc
people are fat cats we need to tax them more and so oi don't think that this is a constructive relationship, i think you see that when a go i like steve wynn -- a guy like steve wynn finally had enough and erupts, steve wynn is a democrat he voted for barack obama and had close ties. so i think you see this as a equal opportunity, not a republican issue not a democrat issue but a frustration in the be community. neil: i think you hit the nail on the head. that it is a frustration on part of the business community, we have seen it coming out of likes of brokerage firms, ratio of almost 5 to 1 giving to mitt romney rather than guy they were drown to 4 years ago barack obama. we're seeing it evan high-tech executives, intel ceo saying that policies don't help us, so this seems to be spreading like like a wildfire, but mr. wynn's comes so north worthy he was not afraid to go out on the limb and be so publicly blunt about it, do you expect others to follow? >> it is difficult for others to do, that but privately you hear a lot of concern nation over this -- concern nation. neil: why
/11, and today osama bin laden is dead. four years ago, i promise to cut taxes for middle-class families, and we have, by $3,600. of promised to cut taxes for small business owners, and we have 18 times. we got back every dime we used to rescue the banks, and we passed a law, to the end taxpayer-funded wall street bailouts permanently. we passed health care reform, also known as obamacare, because i do care. i do not want insurance companies, jerking you around anymore. i do not suit him -- do not want somebody without health care because they have a pre-existing condition. we repealed "don't ask, don't tell," as i promised him we would. today, he no outstanding soldier, marine, sailor, here man -- airman, none of them will be kicked out of the military because of who they are and who they love. when you think about ohio, and when governor romney said that we should let the auto industry go bankrupt -- we said, we are not going to take your advice. do not boo. vote. we reinvented a diving auto industry that supplies one in eight ohio jobs and has come roaring back to the top of the world. four y
. >> if those two different questions -- >> i'm going to call him a liar now. no. talking about the tax plans at the rallies. he was saying the same things on wednesday night and the other piece about how -- >> let me stop you there. i want to read to you if i can about a fact check about the tax. not cutting taxes for the wealthy. in the primary, cut taxes for everyone including the top 1%. suspect that a change? >> no, it's not. he's been saying the entire time that while he would be in favor of an across the board tax c of 25% for every taxpayer, those making over a certain amount of money he would close tax loopholes so their overall taxes that they pay and the overall tax plan would be tax neutral. i mean, it would be revenue neutral. the other piece is you mentioned this other story -- >> the story is specifics, hasn't it? >> i'll keep going back to this to seep the record straight. you all talking about this story that mitt romney had been saying and reported in other places that this is a new softer side of mitt romney. he's been telling that story for months. and so, i mean, this is
is focused on giving herself a $7 million tax cut and hoping that trickles down to people who need help. my plan is focused on investing in the people of this state and funding our schools and building roads and bridges and we recognize the strength of our nation is the people who desperately want to good work. linda does have a plan under website but as we have recently learned, a good part of that is just listed word for word, paragraph by paragraph from white -- from right-wing republican sites in washington. it is not a plan for connecticut. it essentially parrots a bunch of talking points that have not worked for this country. >> why the lack of access as far as where the two of you are day in, day out. >> i don't think there is any comparison in terms of access. linda has refused to meet with editorial boards and i've been very willing to do so. i cannot count the number of press ability -- press availability as i have done. linda mcmahon does not want this campaign to be about issues. because of that is, she loses. whether its tax policy, support for education or women's health care,
currency and all of this one size fits all tax system and welfare programs that are killing the community. melissa: it's true but the common currency, that was a good idea for germany out of the gate. they sort of had this thriving economy. their currency was too strong. they wanted to sell to their neighbors but the problem was their neighbors currency was worthless. originally getting everybody on the same dime so to speak seemed like a good idea for them. now they're sort of stuck with the bill for all this. >> well the reality, that over time german productivity, dutch, northern countries grew more rapidly than in the south for a lot of geographic as well as cultural reasons. making the currency too expensive for greece to be competitive and very cheap, so the germans enjoyed great competitiveness. the only way this works if the southern countries have a huge trade deficit with the northern countries and can borrow money to make up the difference. they have been doing that for several years in variety of ways. government buying on mortgages in spain and the string ran out as it did in
administration did more than just deregulation. they lowered the taxes on the top. one of the things to remember, several decades after world war ii were decades in which the country grew much faster than it did in the decades after 1980. and the country grew together. every group grew but the bottom grew more than the top. so we-- we grew together. after 1980, we grew most slowly and we grew apart. one of the things is we lowered the tax rates on the top. that increased the divide. and the other one is we deregulated, particularly in the financial sector, continued under clinton, under bush. >> rose: where you were the chairman of the council of economic -- >> i opposed those deregulation movements. but this deregulation allowed the banks more scope for moving money from the bottom, all those kind of predatory lending and kinds of practices that we saw. move the money from the bottom to the top. and if you look disproportionately large number of people at the top, in that 1% are from the financial sector. as a teacher, i see it in a slightly different way. i see a disproportionately large numbe
crisis. >> 11 finance ministers in luxembourg agreed to pass a controversial tax on financial transactions. >> the nobel prize for physics goes to the scientists from france and the u.s. >> we began in greece where tens of thousands of angry protesters filled the streets of athens on tuesday to greet german chancellor angela merkel. >> it is her first visit there since the eurozone crisis erupted. she reaffirmed their commitment to keep the debt-ridden state inside your's single currency but offered no promise of further aid. >> a new report on the greek reform process is due next month, and in the meantime, greece is negotiating highly unpopular austerity measures. protesters blamed merkel. >> this morning's peaceful protest turned violent in their early afternoon. police used tear gas to disperse demonstrators. some 40,000 people took to the streets of athens to express their anger with the eu, the austerity measures, and the german chancellor. safely away from the protests, angela merkel said she understood the problems facing many greeks. she promised help as athens perfor
-end, point, where a number of provisions need to be dealt with. it is a massive combination of taxes and spending. we have the george w. bush era tax cuts that were extended two years ago and now expire at the end of the year. these are tax cuts that lower tax rates,hat impact americans all across the income scale. you have tax breaks on higher income, lower income that would shift if congress fails to act. there are middle-class tax breaks that are part of that. congress does not do anything, almost everyone's taxes would go off. there is a sizeable package of spending cuts to the federal government, 100 billion for the next fiscal year that would hit several departments evenly across the pentagon and domestic agencies. these spending cuts were the product of white listeners would remember as the debt ceiling negotiations -- of what listeners would remember as the debt ceiling debate where leaders could not get the debt load under control and they essentially said all right, since we fail to come up with a plan to a month next year we will automatically trigger these -- to come up w
, i never have enough money to do it. the middle class needs relief, tax relief, they need help now. the focus will change with barack obama. >> moderator: governor, please, if you want to respond to what he said about -- palin: i'd like to respond about the tax increases. you know, we can speak in agreement that darn right we need tax relief for americans so that jobs can be created here. now, barack obama and senator biden also voted for the largest tax increases in u.s. history. barack had 94 opportunities to side on the people's side and reduce taxes, and 94 times he voted to increase taxes or not support a tax reduction. 94 times. now, that's not what we need to create jobs and really bolster and heat up our economy. we do need the private sector to be able to keep more of what we earn and produce. government's going to have to learn to be more efficient and live with less if that's what it takes to rein in the government growth that we've seen today. but we do need tax relief, and barack obama even supported increasing taxes as late as last year for those families making only
-- raise everybody's taxes. he took it -- he looked right into the land and says i'm going to raise your taxes. he has had a lot of experience in that and he is going to go ahead and do it. but remember the statement from london johnson when he was looking around at why his party people weren't supporting him. -- lyndon johnson. he said they paid their tails white and ran with the envelopes. there are a lot of democratic tales running with the antelopes. not one single democrat has introduced the mondale tax bill into the congress. of course i support the president's economic program and i support him and everything else. i'm not sure because of my concept of the vice presidency that if i didn't i would go doing what mr. mondale has done with jimmy carter -- jump away from it. i could not do that to ronald reagan now, next year, or any other time. i have too much trust in him, too much friendship for him, and i would feel very uncomfortable doing it. >> some republicans have criticized mr. mondale for saying he disagreed privately with jimmy carter's decision to impose a grain embargo. h
challenged a premise this tax rates at the top should come down. >> it would be a huge mistake to take the dollars we gain from closing loopholes and put them into reducing rates for the highest income brackets rather than into reducing the deficit. the reality is any path forward on tax reform that promises to cut rates will either end up failing to reduce the deficit, or failing to protect the middle class from a net tax increase. >> eliot: senator schumer suggested allowing the rates to return to the prebush rate. of course republicans were quick to pounce on shumers new approach be old attacks. mitch mcconnell said, and i quote . . . for more on the mayhem in washington, i'm joined by one of your favorites bernie sanders,ent senator of vermont. thank you so much for joining us tonight. >> my pleasure. >> eliot: is chuck schumer right that we could challenge the premise that rates at the top should come down. >> of course schumer is right. what the republicans want to do and some democrats is lower the tax rates for the wealthiest people in this country at a time
of comfort with voters. the obama campaign guns in. plant closings, layoffs, outsourcing, income tax returns. they take a baseball bat in beat romney's brains in in the six or seven swing states. that is why his numbers were upside down. why they did that i do not know. i have been asking that question since june. it was a huge miscalculation. the romney campaign family intervention try to introduce him -- this is what they should have done back in may or june. >> mrs. romney and the oldest son of mitt romney went to the father and said to have to change things. >> for a long time, the family had wanted to take the charlie cook approach. chris wallace alluded to the fact that their big bet from the beginning was that all you had to be was not obama. that turned out to be wrong. we can see in the different channels that they are doing now. you have to be yourself in addition to not being obama. >> let me explain. a lot of you do not know who stuart stevens is. he is a republican strategist from mississippi. he was a hollywood writer. he used to write "northern exposure." he has written a coup
tax cuts for the middle class. it means help for homeowners so that they can stay in their homes. it means that we are helping state and local governments set up road projects and bridge projects that keep people in their jobs. and then long term, we've got to fix our health care system, we've got to fix our energy system that is putting such an enormous burden on families. you need somebody working for you and you've got to have somebody in washington who is thinking about the middle class and not just those who can afford to hire lobbyists. >> senator mccain? >> well, thank you, tom. thank you, belmont university. and senator obama, it's good to be with you at a town hall meeting. and, alan, thank you for your question. you go to the heart of america's worries tonight. americans are angry, they're upset, and they're a little fearful. it's our job to fix the problem. now, i have a plan to fix this problem, and it's got to do with energy independence. we've got to stop sending $700 billion a year to countries that don't want us -- like us very much. we have to keep americans' tax
